I have concluded that the phd-vrx has some sort of memory management problem that we cannot fix as users.. its in the firmware and how it uses any available memory.
1. Insufficient memory or the type of memory,
2. Corrupted memory with old data remaining and not getting clear out,
3. Insufficient processor and/or firmware compatibility.
Is this with this latest versions or all versions?
(note that shutting the unit off and turning it on does not have the same effect as pulling the cord out of the wall.
Are you referring to the standby button or the power switch? The power button is a mechanical switch in line with the 'high' side which removes power from the power supply. You should wait 30 or so seconds before powering it back up to let the caps discharge. Open the case up and see yourself. You shouldn't be a need to remove the power cord.
